If you haven't visited and are still looking for a park, go to Fairmount Park and the Wissahickon. It's amazing.

I will second the vote for Reading Terminal Market, which is a blast with many food options to explore, many more than you could cover in a weekend.  I'll also suggest Chinatown for cheap and adventurous eats, it's a very short walk from the Market East SEPTA stop.  I'm a fan of Dim Sum Garden and Nan Zhou Hand Drawn Noodle House.

If you're looking for a cheesesteak, try Steaks on South or Tony Luke's, or Campo's Deli.  Fairmount Park is always interesting.  For a little American history, you can't beat Independence National Historical Park.  Have a blast, but leave the dynamite at home!

Do not miss, or you will regret it, Di Nic's in the Reading Terminal Market.  You can eat cheaply in the market the entire time you are in Philly, but make sure to stop here before anywhere else!

Federal Donuts and Pizzeria Beddia are inexpensive, incredible and unique to Philadelphia.  For parks... Independence Mall and Fairmount Park

Hello Teri!  For cheap eats, I could easily work two days around Reading Terminal Market.  Numerous choices of many ethnic cuisines, some great sandwich joints and just a fun place to walk around. Just a mile, or so, to your west, are several college campuses, and around the Philadelphia Museum of Art, there is some nice open space.  I would also check out Eastern State Penitentiary, which is a really cool, now defunct, old school penitentiary.  Hope that helps and safe travels!
